We’re an independent agency that ensures Victorian councils follow the Local Government Act 2020.
The Inspectorate can assess and potentially investigate complaints about Victorian councils.
You can report concerns about Victorian councillors, council staff, a person providing advice to council, or council elections, to the Local Government Inspectorate.
Our fact sheets, report summaries and case studies of local government examinations and investigations are designed to help councils comply with the Local Government Act.
What the Inspectorate can and can't investigate, how the investigation process works and how investigation outcomes are reported.
